06-Sep-12 English breakfast bribe!

In Blog, Personal on September 6, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Just time for a very brief blog today, as the Paralympics beckon (more on that tomorrow).

Normally on a Thursday, I take the opportunity to update everyone on my personal targets and today is no different. Especially as significant progress has been made on my family tree.

So far, two of the four second cousins I sent a letter to have rung me and we have had a great chat! Its actually very bizarre, because although it feels a tad nervy, we are related and therefore very quickly, it all feels very comfortable!

It’s been a fascinating journey for me so far, as the intention was only to meet a relative I did not know. Looking back, I should have been more ambitious and set a target of meeting more (only kidding)!

In terms of the other targets, well it goes from one extreme to the other, with virtually nothing being achieved!

My plan is still to go fishing in Brighton. I just have to convince my brother it’s a good idea and that he wants to join me! Knowing my brother, I might have to bribe him (promise him an full English with a builders mug of tea)!

In term of the Island, I’m still working on the details, which involves where we can go, when, how much it will cost and who else joins us (hard work eh)!

Others are stalled, but if you want a reminder of what they are and have some ideas on how they can be achieved, visit my blog from last week.
